Battery will not charge any more?

After a hard drive failure and a reinstall of Snow Leopard on the new hard drive, the computer will not charge.

So I replaced he MagSafe board per the directions on this website.

I only have a faint green light on the MagSafe charger end and a message under the battery icon that says "Battery Failure, replace battery immediately."

I replace the battery and now it says "battery not charging."

Coconut battery indicates 127 cycles and zero charge and 95% capacity available.

What could be wrong?

Thanks Majesty, I should add that I have reset the PMU and the PRAM but no help.

I would reset the PMU and PRAM, these resets sometimes cure some some odd behavior like this.

Too late for you but maybe for someone else - replace the Battery Connector. I've seen a lot of these fail since this question was asked.
